As the climate crisis escalates, the question lingers: How can one individual, perhaps even you, confront such a monumental challenge? The key is to break down the overwhelming crisis into smaller problems, starting with your local community. What specific environmental issues does your town grapple with? How do you initiate successful change? Well, you’ve come to the right place! This online course consists of engaging and dynamic modules designed specifically for environmentally conscious teenagers who are eager to make a positive impact on their communities.
We use the EPA’s 5 stages of Environmental Education – Awareness & Sensitivity, Knowledge & Understanding, Attitudes, Skills, and Participation – breaking down each stage of community outreach. We’ve got you covered, every step of the way!
